    If you are referring to the NEJM article, it was 40 days until hospitalization of a few patients, not necessarily 40 days until onset of symptoms. Even that study...

    No, you're wrong. That's not why he was sent home. He was sent home because of incompetence.

    Um, yeah, it is considered standard of care to ask a patient travel history when someone presents with diarrhea, etc. Not just to rule out Ebola, but other parasites and organisms as well.
